In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
This Cicerone guidebook by Italian walking expert Gillian Price offers readers 48 day routes, on little-known but well waymarked paths, in the picturesque Lakes region of Northern Italy. Hemmed in by awesome cliffs, the glittering expanses of Maggiore, Como, Iseo and Garda have been visited by English-speaking holidaymakers since the days of the Grand Tour for their exquisite villas and lush gardens. Some visitors come for outdoor activities such as windsurfing and sailing. Yet just a few steps beyond the popular lakefronts lies wonderful network of footpaths offering delightful walking for all levels of experience and ability, from a leisurely waterfront stroll to a demanding 5-hour hike into the Alps. Well-marked straightforward routes can be enjoyed on short or longer walks, easily fitted into the space of a day. And every one of them can be accessed by the excellent local public transport network - ferry, train, bus, cable car, chair lift or funicular. All routes are illustrated with the author's own clear maps and inspirational colour photographs with full information provided about accommodation and public transport options around each of the four lakes for easy planning.
